pm at the College Park Aviation
"Butterflies: Nature’s Festival of Colors"
presented by C. “Sparky” Sparks
While we're covered in snow, let's think about bright beautiful butterflies!
Each summer, volunteers across North America fan out to count butterflies to
promote interest in butterflies and provide results for the scientific
monitoring of butterflies within North America. The North
American Butterfly Association (NABA) count program has been held
annually since 1975 with more counts occuring every year. Much like Christmas Bird Counts, volunteers conduct a
one-day census, counting every butterfly they observe within their count
circle. The West Anne Arundel County Count is centered in Odenton
and encompasses habitats on the Patuxent Research Refuge North
Tract. Mr. Sparks will present the results of 15 years of West
Anne Arundel County counts.
